Hey everyone! You may recall that I recently posted about Oculus' Mobile VR Jam. We have some good news for anyone who has signed up to participate: Oculus has sent our group a Samsung Gear VR kit to develop on! If you're signed up with a jam team and would like to borrow the hardware, than please contact me and we can arrange for a hand-off.

Having trouble finding a game jam in your neck of the woods? Why not run your own? My new tutorial can help.
Game jams are a great way to get some game development experience, meet other developers, and, ever importantly, have some fun. No game jams in your area? No problem! This simple guide will have you running your own game jam in no time. | Difficulty: Beginner; Length: Medium; Tags: Game Jams, Business, Community, Networking

A fine photo of my #PAXPrime2014 panel: "You're SO mature! Is storytelling in games coming of age?" I don't know the photographer, but it's from this blog http://gameintrospection.com/ and I am all for more introspection related to games.

As a professional game dev I find this article to be disturbing. Who can afford to work for free? I mean, I work with friends on projects on the side for rev share, but not full-time at 40+ hours a week. http://www.polygon.com/2014/9/11/6132227/game-development-startup-salaries
Nine Dots is a small indie start-up. The studio was founded three years ago, and we're currently a team of seven full-time developers.

I hear that a lot. Most projects of this size have their bumps, so I've no idea if it's just the normal SNAFU situation or what. If you look just in front of the existing bridge, you can see that they have constructed some concrete pylons for the new bridge already. Wish I'd gotten a better shot of that.

I need your help! I have been invited to go to a conference in Toronto to present some of my fiction. Only I need to do a fundraiser to pay for the plane tickets and the hotel there. There is only 7 days left and if I cannot raise enough money I won't be able to go and will need to cancel with the conference. PLEASE HELP!
